TAKAZAWA CANDLE

Founded in 1892 in Noto Nanao city, TAKAZAWA Candle creates traditional Japanese candles, called warousoku, from natural wax derived from plant-based raw materials—specifically, haze seeds, canola flower, and coconut oil. It is said that warousoku were born in Japan through the introduction of Buddhism and based on an item made of beeswax dating back to the Nara period (710–794 CE). In the Edo period (1603–1868 CE), the cultivation of haze (wax trees), a raw material used in warousoku, flourished in Kyushu and Shikoku, and these candles came into use by the masses.

  • Made in Japan
  • Measures approximately 0.75" D x 4.25" H
  • Burn time: 90 minutes
  • Warousoku burn with a large, bright flame; keep the candle at a safe distance from other items and do not place flammable items above the candle
  • Use a candlestick that is the correct size for the candle, and secure the candle upright, making sure it doesn’t wobble
  • While the candle is burning, cut the black burnt part of the wick down to adjust the size of the flame (a specialist wick trimmer is recommended for this) 
  • Melted wax may splatter if you extinguish the candle by blowing it out
  • Warm up wax left on the candlestick with warm water, melt, and rinse; wipe the candlestick with a soft cloth and make sure to dry the candlestick completely before using it again
  • A white powder may appear on the surface of warousoku; this is a trait unique to plant-based wax and occurs when the wax crystallizes—it is not a quality defect
  • Store candles in cool places out of direct sunlight
  • Also shown: Medium Koma Candlestick (not included)
